Brand new episode of Tropes vs Women is online! Please heed the content warning on this video. It contains some especially triggering scenes of sexual violence.
I found this hard to watch. Even if you removed all of her commentary and just showed the clips from the games, it would be disturbing.
I’ve tried reading some of the “rebuttals” of this video, but even if I wasn’t a crazy leftie liberal feminist whatever… it’s all nonsense. And I think they know it is too, because the most common response to this video is to attack the messenger.
"This nagging ugly bitch just wants something to complain about like all social justice retards. The second you apologize or give them an inch they will simply criticize you more. "
That was the first reblog comment I saw in the notes. Using misogyny and slurs to try and de-legitimatize a video about misogyny is an interesting debate tactic.
It seems people are quite literally trying to kill the messenger. Attack her character. Make her look so bad that it undermines the message of the video.
It isn’t going to work. Something is clearly rotten in the state of gaming. It needs to be addressed. It doesn’t matter if you like her or not… the truth is undeniable and people need to start accepting that.
She isn’t telling people they aren’t allowed to like their video games. She clearly states that at the beginning of all her videos. And what she is suggesting is not going to make games terrible and unfun. All that is desired is for women to be respected in gaming and perhaps a little more representation that isn’t two dimensional. That certainly doesn’t seem like it is worth threatening someone’s life to fight against.
Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

All this needs is a pipe holder as well, and I’d be set.
Bruce Munro was born in 1959 and completed a B.A. in Fine Arts at Bristol Polytechnic. Shortly thereafter he moved to Sydney, where he learned about design and lighting, inspired by Australia’s natural light and landscape. Returning to Southwest England in 1992, he settled with his family in the countryside near Bath and set up a studio.
He is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. Recording ideas and images in sketchbooks has been his practice for over 30 years. By this means he has captured his responses to stimuli such as music, literature, science, and the world around him for reference, reflection, and subject matter. This tendency has been combined with a liking for components and an inventive urge for reuse, coupled with career training in manufacture of light. As a result Munro produces both monumental temporary experiential artworks as well as intimate story-pieces.

OH. MY GOD
Well I just found out who stole my Sweetroll.
Art Nouveau Meerschaum. Beautiful ladies and a botanical motif, no wonder this pipe shows signs of being regularly smoked. It would be perfect if the amber stem had survived. Acrylic looks good on it. For sale on ebay.
